Great BBQ in a quaint family friendly place!

We discovered this little gem using the app Field Trip. This place was featured on Man vs. Food. The burnt ends sandwich is amazing!! Could have had three of them! The hot sauce is yummy too. Brooke's Bad A** Beans are a signature dish and good too! Quick service and very friendly. One small... read more

Was on the big eats show, made up a sandwich to get on there. Also on another show. NOT a good option for KC BBQ, I have been there a few times and never thought it was good. Beans best thing there. Better to go to other local BBQ places.

Small place, but big on taste. I had the burnt end sandwich. Tasted very good. Others at the table had the pulled pork, the BBQ turkey, and the chicken strips. Clean plates all around. Very nice and courteous wait staff. Got right in, place was full of families on a rainy Saturday noon.

The variety of the sauces and menu is awesome. They have an old fashioned type of feel to this place that makes you feel like you have gone back in time to somewhere amazing. Every thing I have tried here is great. The pulled pork, the chili, the chicken tenders, and all their BBQ sauces. I will be back soon!

They seem intent on trading on their Man vs. Food appearance for all eternity, but sometimes a big pile of crap is just a big pile of crap. The food was ok, but there's no reason to settle for just "ok" in an area where there's so much REALLY GOOD BBQ to be had. Even Roscoe's just on the other... More

Paid $14 and got maybe 12 little end pieces of brisket. . Not even 1/4 pound... Food was good and staff and owner was extremely friendly ... Can't say anything bad except small portions for the $$$$$$

A co-worker and I had lunch here for the first time today. The food was excellent, we had a great pleasant waitress, and the restaurant was very clean. Great Experience. Regular ribs, fries, and a variety of sauces.

This is a great place on the western side of KC, perfect place to stop on the way to Topeka. The service was fast and friendly. If you visit from out of town you'll get to put a pin in the world map to mark your home town. Man vs. Food visited here a few years back and to date... More

The BBQ here is always delicious and the service is great. Papa Bob makes all his own sauces. If he isn't too busy, he will even come out & say hello! Very friendly atmosphere. We go there quite often!!

We recently moved to Kansas and as bbq lovers were looking forward to trying famous Kansas City bbq. We've been several places and have continuously been disappointed. Then one day we saw this place on Man vs Food and thought we should try them. We drove an hour and a half to visit and it was well worth it! Meat... More
